With the latest software update, your Nintendo Switch has been sharing your player data via Google Analytics. Nintendo Switch system update to version 11.0.0 was released last week and the new software patch actually brought along some significant changes to the table. Some of the key features include the ability to share screenshots and videos directly to smartphones by scanning a QR code; the ability to transfer screenshots and videos to a PC using a USB cable; Nintendo Switch Online now accessible from the main menu and much more.
However, amid all the cool new features, what's not cool is the fact that Nintendo has enabled a setting that shares your player data via Google Analytics. For better privacy, you should disable this.
Before you go ahead and turn off data sharing on your Nintendo Switch, make sure that you have updated your console to the latest software version to enjoy all the new features. Follow these steps to update your Nintendo Switch.
After the update is finished, your Nintendo Switch will reboot before you can start using it.
After you've updated to the latest software on your Nintendo Switch, here's how to disable data sharing via Google Analytics. Follow these steps.
This is how you can turn off data sharing on your Nintendo Switch, at least until the next update. Do note, if you have multiple accounts on your Switch, you'll have to turn off data sharing for each one individually.
